Default Christmas Music, Pipe Tunes, and silly stuff.

Yes, it is that season again. and we all know the drill, and the music. So rather than asking where and when you're likely to play the equivalents of the Chipmunks' Holiday Song again. I'm more curious about what you've heard requested, or been asked the music for.

Recently a pipe score for the Pogues' Fairy Tale of New York was requested. Now, some of us might be thinking WTF? That has got to fall well outside the range of the pipes, and you're probably correct. However if you watch the official video you never hear the pipe band. But the histories, I've read all say the same thing. The band is playing the Mickey Mouse Club March.

And yes there is a Copy Righted version of the music for pipes 1987 Perfect Scores Limited. So nope ain't even going to attempt to display the sheet music for pipes

With that in mind what are some of the more outlandish things, you've heard requested for Christmas tunes? But here is a URL link to the Bagpipe version of A Fairy Tale Of New York. https://youtu.be/lS_S9gSm63s
Breaching the peace? What bagpipes officer?
